Has anyone successfully run StarryNight Pro8 with the SkyFi module and a Nexstar+ HC on a Win10 device?

 

I have the Nexstar and SkyFi running SkySafari6 Pro very well on an Android tablet, but not StarryNight Pro8 on a Win10 laptop. Upon selecting "connect", the screen freezes and the only way out is the old standby: Ctrl/Alt/delete.

I have it working using the Star Sense Hand Control and the SkyFi 3 device.  You may want to open a ticket with Simulation Curriculum if you haven't already done that.

Thanks guys.

 

I have gone through the checklist a few times, downloaded the ASCOM and VSP files and SNP8 more than once.

I have had a session with a SimCurr tech which included, a 'TeamViewer' remote computer session. 

Everything goes well with installation and configuration. When a 'connect' button is pushed everything freezes up.

 

I'm sure it's a simple fix, we just haven't found it yet.
